Balaam’s Prophesy

Balak, king of Moab, wanted Balaam (a greedy prophet for hire) to curse Israel, but as Balaam said, “I can only say what God tells me to say.”  Three times Balak tried to get Balaam to curse Israel, but he could not.  Here is a sample of his prophetic utterances:

“The nation is like a mighty lion; when it is sleeping, no one dares wake it.  Whoever blesses Israel will be blessed, And whoever curses Israel will be cursed” (Numbers 24: 9 GNT).

To read all of Balaam’s prophecies concerning Israel, read Numbers 23 and 24.



  1. Israel is physically God’s holy nation, and it is un-cursable.
